We watched just three episodes of Boardwalk Empire before we got bored with it and moved on to the next television show in our To Be Watched pile of DVDs, House of Cards, another show about corrupt politicians but a much better one. The good writers HBO couldn’t find when they were looking for someone to write the script for Boardwalk Empire must have come out of the woodwork for House Of Cards. We both so enjoyed watching Kevin Spacey doing a modern-day Richard III even while we despised his character, a congressman who gets jilted by the president he helped to elect. Plots and intrigue are a lot more enjoyable to watch as they play out than gangsters blowing each other’s faces off because the writers couldn’t come up with anything more interesting.
